Rathayibacter festucae (type strain VKM Ac-1390(T) UCM Ac-619(T)) is a coryneform actinomycete found in leaf galls induced by Anguina graminis on Festuca rubra L. Rathayibacter festucae is easily recognized among other yellow-pigmented rathayibacters because of its rose-orange-colored colonies (Dorofeeva et al., 2002).
